Easy out and back hike with great views and scenery. Provides a route into other Trails in the Sonoran Preserve. 1.1 Miles each way.
no parking lot and limited on street parking. the trailhead is off the road and easy to find but quickly gets confusing with private property signs and gated trails. you have to hop over the sonoran desert preserve gate to stay on the trail. from there on in the trail is well marked. very easy hike. really feel like you're in the middle of the desert.
I really liked this Trail, fairly flat and easy, great desert scenery, you do cross a few dry washes, and there are great sign posts along the way showing GPS, elevation and distance. Recommended more for a walk than a hike, and also provides access to the Dixie Mountain Loop Trail.
